I've thought about this poem a lot, and would like to comment. I like the poem, but I think it needs some work...you begin by approaching the stranger, then you say "We faced each other", then L5, "she stood"...were you both sitting then? ...when did you sit down? is this line necessary?
Paul, I really like what you are trying to do...describe the mystery of love at first sight...an almost impossible task....I look forward to any revisions.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
